Autism Awareness Week
Prior to Autism Awareness Week (April 2-8), Glen Rock parents, staff and administrators made a presentation to the BOE at the March 27 Regular Meeting. Organizers shared reading the stanzas from Emily Perl Kingsley's poem, "Welcome to Holland," which describes the experience of raising a child with Autism through a metaphorical perspective of planning a trip to Italy but suddenly finding oneself in Holland. Following the recitation, parent Christina Peck presented a recap of past events and community-wide plans for the following week.
Participants in the Autism Week presentations were (from left) Hamilton School Principal Irene Pierides, Behaviorist Dr. Gina Restivo, parent Kristine Gifford, parent Christina Peck, Director of Special Services Dr. Linda Edwards, parent Nicole Redmond, parent Michelle Torpey, parent Michelle Hallajian, Glen Rock Middle School Principal Dr. Jennifer Wirt, LDT/C Victoria Billeter and Psychologist Dr. Melissa Silverman.
